After months of avoiding one, the Quesnel School District has reported their third “exposure event” related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event took place at McNaughton Secondary School Jan. 6 – 8.
“If your child’s school has been notified of an exposure, no action is required unless you are contacted by Public Health or are otherwise directed by school officials,” Northern Health’s website reads. “Public Health will contact you directly in case of any school exposure involving your child.”
Two other exposure events happened in Quesnel School District in Fall 2020, both at Quesnel Junior School.
Students at the school are encouraged to monitor for any potential COVID-19 symptoms. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 according to the government of Canada is a fever, dry cough and tiredness. Some people with COVID-19 have reported a loss of smell or taste.
If there is a school exposure, public health contacts affected school community members directly.
